Tevez: I won't rule out return

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has reiterated his desire to return to Boca Juniors to end his career reports talkSPORT.

The 27-year-old Argentine international has made no secret of his desire to end his stay in England, after handing in a transfer request this summer.

Citizens boss Roberto Mancini has admitted defeat in convincing Tevez that his long-term future lies at the Etihad Stadium, and so moved to bring in Sergio Aguero from Atletico Madrid in a £38million record deal.

Valued at £40million, Tevez failed to engineer a move to either Inter Milan or Corinthians - neither interested party were prepared to meet the fee set by Manchester City.


After the transfer deadline passed last week, Tevez will now remain in Manchester at least until January, but that hasn't stopped the player from talking openly about his future aspirations.

Speaking to South American news agency Telam, Tevez revealed: "I have had, and always have, Boca Juniors in my heart.

"I have played for Boca before and I will not rule out returning to them in the future to play at The Bombonera and [then] saying goodbye to professional football."

In order for Tevez to realise his dream of returning to his homeland with Boca, he would have to take a considerable drop in wages, compared to the £150,000-a-week he currently earns at cash-rich Manchester City.
